in reply to
Stubborn as a Saint
I do not consider myself a high-ranked monk,
nor do I think of myself as a great perl programmer - most
of what I know I learned in painful ways and there are large
areas of perl that are still dark magic to me.
I have on several occassions not voiced my opinion in a thread
because I figured somebody who was more capable of answering
the question ( eg, I may know it doesn't work but cannot
explain why ) would answer later.
At others times I have not corrected a monk I respect
because I just assumed the monk
knew what they were doing and I had missed ( as usual )
Just as I have taught myself to vote for an article based
solely on its merits and not on the author, it seems now I
will have to teach myself to suggest corrections based
solely on the code, not on who wrote it. That is, I think,
going to be much harder.
